Faces Mini


Faces Mini
Instructor: Carla Sonheim
A Three-Lesson, “Bite-Sized” Class with Carla Sonheim
Drawing, painting, mixed-media • $25

Now available as a self-study class.

Price: $25.00



In this class we will focus on drawing and painting the human face. We will do nine different assignments that allow you to approach your subjects fast, slow, messily, neatly, realistically, abstractly — all to help ferret out your own unique and personal style.

We will draw from live models, from photos, and our imaginations. We’ll use watercolor, pencil, pastels, and colored pencils to create 50 quick faces by the end of the week. End goal: You don’t want to draw faces like me or anyone else — you want to draw like YOU!

Take this class if you want to try your hand at different drawing styles and methods, love the human face, or want to start developing your own unique face “style.”

Note: This is a shortened, re-filming of “Faces 101,” one of my first online classes. The exercises in this new version are the same… the only difference is the presenter is a little more confident on camera. 😉
